QPR defender Anton Ferdinand is talking with Turkish outfit Bursaspor over a potential loan move to the club, according to British broadcaster the BBC.

Ferdinand has not started a Premier League match for Harry Redknapp’s men since 26th December, a game lost 2-1 against West Brom.

The defender appears to have fallen out of favour under Redknapp and could now spend the second half of the current campaign in Turkey.

Redknapp is revamping his squad during the winter transfer window and is also set to lose another defender in the shape of Ryan Nelsen, who is leaving Loftus Road to take over at MLS outfit Toronto FC.


Nelsen’s date of departure had been up in the air, but it has been confirmed he will now join the Canadian team on 1st February.

Ferdinand signed for QPR in 2011, joining from Sunderland.

Were the 27-year-old to complete a move to Bursaspor, he would see a familiar face at the club in the shape of former Liverpool goalkeeper Scott Carson.
